The expression "drinks like a fish" comes to mind[:D]

That is probably some variation of the much reproduced "Dr. Fitches Bitters"....Some of them came from Italy....(The reproductions, that is...) Joe

Could be a wine bottle form the 1970s . I have one with the contents still intact. Not sure if this is the same bottle or not , looks like it though.

I can still get bottles like that for about $15 bucks filled with Italian white table wine in local grocery stores. As I recall, the wine wasn't all that great but I kept the bottle for it's 'coolness!' I finally figured out what to do with it this spring. For under $5 bucks at Walmart, I picked up two rubber and aluminum bar bottle stoppers and dispense olive oil in my kitchen IN STYLE!

I picked up a lobster shaped bottle of wine, too and they're both in service that way. Recycling at its best!
